Short course are back
It’s official, the TWIMS team is back on campus and ready to welcome our first short course students to the campus. Not only are we finally ready to run the Future of Manufacturing and Green Manufacturing short courses, these courses will be offered both in person on our campus and live online simultaneously!

Executive Development Programme
As mentioned above we are now ready to host our students on campus for our 3 day short courses. However, we understand that travel is not possible for some of our community; we will therefore stream our courses online simultaneously. Both online and in person students will get an opportunity to discuss topics, ask questions and engage with the lecturer.
Future of Manufacturing
The Future of Manufacturing course focuses on applying a range of strategic tools to interrogate and engage with potentially highly disruptive market, social and technology forces that are re-framing the manufacturing sector’s development trajectory. Over the course of the three days we explore the rapid rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) and industrial IoT, and the use of “big data” that will have major disruptive consequences for manufacturing and try answer some important questions. Are new business models likely to emerge? Is South African manufacturing closeted from these developments, or will changes occur domestically in the same manner as being observed internationally?
25th- 27th August
The Manufacturing MBA
The GIBS Manufacturing MBA is as unique as it is valuable. This specialised masters programme combines the world renowned business acumen of GIBS and the manufacturing expertise of TWIMS. This is a global qualification for a business leader in Africa.
Prof. Justin Barnes will be hosting an online open evening on the 19th of August from 6pm – 7pm. This is your opportunity to ask questions about the MBA, TWIMS, GIBS and our scholarship programme. Join Prof. Barnes by registering below.
From the TWIMS team we would like to say happy Women’s Day to all the ladies in our industry, community and families. Your impact is immense, power limitless and courage admirable.
Thank you for everything you do.
